Our driver-guide, Cendrine with Tour Azur, was FANTASTIC!! -- very professional, highly informative/knowledgable, and very flexible with the needs of our group. We were traveling with a multi-generational family with a small child, and she made our day easy, fun, and relaxing!! We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip seeing the beautiful sites of Nice, Eze, and Monaco. One of the best excursions we booked during our cruise trip. Additionally: The child car seat I requested was installed properly and ready to go when we arrived. This was not the case with any of the other excursions we booked in other Italian, not French cities.

Wonderful private shore excursion with very knowledgeable and engaging guide. It was amazing how much detail she knew about the history of the area. The private tour of the perfume factory was nice as well...apart from the large coach tours. Would highly recommend.

Our tour was outstanding. The guide was there right on time. We spent some time walking around in Nice, then headed to Eze (where our guide told us exactly the best place to go and things to do), and finished with a visit to Monaco (with a visit to the Castle and cathedral in Monte Carlo and a drive along the Grand Prix course). Along the way our guide stopped for us to get a couple pictures from a great viewpoint. She was full of information about each place we visited, had a wonderful attitude and was simply perfect. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Fantastic experience! We booked this tour privately rather than through the cruise ship we traveled with and our experience was wonderful! Our guide met us right at the dock and immediately walked us to a clean and comfortable van. The tour was amazing. Our guide spoke wonderful English and was full of information about Nice, Eze and Monaco. She constructed the tour based upon our wishes and had great advice about areas to get the best pictures, where to shop, and eat.
The best part of a private car/van tour is that the drivers can take you right up to the entrance of the siters, no parking a bus far away and trudging with the masses wearing earbuds trying to keep up with the crowd. The price is the same or cheaper than a cruise ship tour bus for a family, and the experience is second to none. This was a trip we will remmeber forever! Thanks you!!
